Academy Safety Protocol for Skills

Do you have a desire to serve your community? Do you feel called to help drive the positive change society is craving?

A career in law enforcement is a commitment to the service of others, justice, and the greater good.

Communities trust law enforcement officers to maintain the law, combat crime, and protect the ideals of justice our country was founded upon. While a career in law enforcement is often stressful and potentially dangerous, it is an incredibly rewarding career with the power to positively impact the communities and lives around you.

Someone with a natural ability to communicate, enhanced social awareness, and compassion for others is generally able to leverage those skills to complement their professional training and ultimately produce a quality law enforcement professional.

If you desire a career you can be proud of, and are motivated by working towards something greater than yourself, you're invited to apply for admission into Kiamichi Tech’s Police Officer Training Academy. As a CLEET-accredited training center, Kiamichi Tech is providing a new route to Basic Peace Officer Certification in the state of Oklahoma.

Students should expect intense, rigorous training throughout the Academy.

Kiamichi Tech is expanding on the 600 training hours CLEET requires for Basic Peace Officer Certification to include 5 additional certifications in Taser, Patrol Rifle and Shotgun Certification, Tactical Emergency Casualty Care, and Stop the Bleed. The 700+ hours of hands-on training will provide realistic training scenarios led by highly qualified instructors. Students should expect to attend training a minimum of 40 hours per week, with skills blocks involving 10+ hour days and weekly totals over 40 hours. Attendance is mandatory throughout the Academy’s duration, and no absences will be permitted during any skills blocks.  Students will be held to the highest standard and evaluated on their ability to demonstrate their competency and ability throughout all aspects of the program.
